UC offers so many opportunites to get involved with campus ministries.
Baptist Campus Ministries
BCM focuses on building excellent Christian leadership in students, on the inward spiritual journey to find Christ and on the outward spiritual journey of service in His power. Weekly campus services called Celebration include praise and worship led by the BCM praise band. Upperclassmen lead small groups for discipleship with a variety of weekly activities.
This ministry reaches out to the Appalachian area surrounding the University. Students serve as team leaders for “big projects,” a warehouse ministry and other services. No construction experience is needed to participate. Be a part of a ministry that has built over 135 homes for local families.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Athletes are provided various opportunities to find and develop their relationship with Christ. FCA’s weekly service includes praise and worship and messages that can help athletes minister to their teammates and classmates. For its outreach ministry, FCA ministers to area youth by leading huddle groups in local high school programs. The group also participates in other mission projects throughout the year.
You can volunteer to help children and youth from four areacommunities by leading Bible lessons, crafts, music or recreation. You can also volunteer to interact with physically and mentally challenged children in the area school systems. Appalachian Ministries also sponsors an Angel Tree ministry for needy children during the Christmas season.
